2023: Atiku, Peter Obi, Kwankwaso Have No Integrity – Tinubu
Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress (APCpresidential )’s candidate, has said that his rivals in the general election of 2019 lack integrity.
The APC presidential candidate reportedly stated this on Tuesday in Calabar, Cross River State, at a town hall meeting with APC stakeholders, according to Naija News.
The former governor of Lagos State, Tinubu, told those present at the town hall gathering that he has what it takes to prevail and lead the nation.
They have no history, no expertise, no record, and no integrity, so all they do is use derogatory language, he claimed. Nigeria’s development is a concern of mine, and as president, I will work toward that goal.
“This country’s failure to advance over the past 60 years is our fault, but pushing Nigeria ahead is a duty that must be accomplished.”
According to Naija News, Tinubu would compete in the 2023 general election against Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Tuesday, lost hundreds of its members to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The defectors from Epe Local Government Area of Lagos State also declared their support for the PDP governorship candidate in the state, Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, and his running mate, Olufunke Akindele.
They also endorsed the presidential candidate of the main opposition party, Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, Ifeanyi Okowa.
Giving reason for their defection from APC, the defectors said the unending deceit and deception in APC which has caused harm to their political career is also dangerous to Nigeria’s democratic system.
The Deputy Chairman of the party, Tai Benedict, while welcoming the defectors commended them for their courage to quit APC and join PDP to save the state from 23 years of neglect and bad governance.
